Windows 7: Latest Internet Explorer 9 Release

So, if the RC of IE9b is supposedly releasing on Feb 10, then when can the final release be expected? And, do you folks know if MS will be updating IE9 in cycles similar to Chrome, Opera and FF? Or, will the next makeover and upgrade of IE9 follow the way in which MS upgrades IE?
Thanks

No, MS generally releases new IE version every 2.5 years

Good question. It's a lot more interesting to use software that is updated incrementally and frequently. Microsoft doesn't seem to "get" that. Fortunately there are quite a few good browsers to choose from. I'm glad that IE keeps improving, but it still doesn't really impress me. I keep an open mind though

While I agree with you about the excitement involved in working with regular and incremental updates and improvements, I should say that I do like IE9b a lot actually. Till recently, I was on Chrome (latest stable build), but after I fixed a problem with my IE9b install, I am liking it a lot more than Chrome. I accept that it is a bit slower than Chrome and lacks two very important (in my opinion) things - (1) an efficient ad-blocker add-on and (2) a spell check. But otherwise, I find IE9b to be a polished browser. And, yes, like you I don't get it why MS does not "get" the benefits of regular incremental updates specifically for their browser!!!!

Because it's an illegal copy that could also be malware infected, and you would get permanently banned.
